Hans Hermann Jansen (Baritone)

Born: Germany

The German baritone, Hans Hermann Jansen, attended the music class at the Internatsschule Collegium Augustinianum Gaesdonck in Detmold Schulmusik, then he studied music theory and singing and at the Bielefeld Germanistik. He has also participated in master-classes with Gérard Souzay, Kurt Moll, Robert Spencer and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.

As a soloist and an ensemble singer he works predominantly in France and Belgium and others as a member of the Chapelle Royale and the Collegium Vocale Gent under the direction of Philippe Herreweghe, Gustav Leonhardt and Sigiswald Kuijken. Since 1992 he is closely connected to the Abtei Marienmünster. In 1993 he created the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde (Society of the Music Friends) and the duo Philomele (singing/conventional guitar), and since 1996 he is a member of the musical-literary quartet as well as the soloist group Col/Voc Detmold/Leipzig.

He is present on numerous CD productions within the range of the early music and as a Lieder singer. For some time he dedicates himself to the Gregorian chant and looks for possibilities of a re-orientation in sounds and music-historical view. As a managing director of the international Grabbe-Gesellschaft he maintains various contacts and impulses in the frontier of music and literature. He lives and works today in Detmold.
